Q&As

I love that I have the opportunity to connect with people at a very deep and genuine level that is rare in normal social discourse. I also love to see the transformation as people grow and find ways to get out of their predicament and take steps to create the life they want.

After several years of working in the non-government sector I felt that private practice would enable me to work more effectively with my own strengths and to provide a more holistic intervention to address mental suffering.

The most important thing in a healing relationship is that there is a good fit between therapist and client.

My approach is collaborative. I will listen to you on a deep level - not only to your problem but also for your strengths, resources and values which you may have lost sight of, or possibly not even been aware of.

As a social worker my psychological interventions are informed by an understanding of the broader context of people's lives: the impact of environment, living situation, family, work, etc on your experience as an individual. I bring also the perspective of the Eastern wisdom traditions - the practice of yoga and mindfulness - to contribute to your healing.

Whilst I have knowledge and skills to share I believe you are the expert in your own life - my job is to cast a light on your own inner resources and walk alongside you as you learn new skills and re-discover what you already know.

If you are ready to take this journey - to find greater freedom from troublesome thoughts and emotions; increase your ability to take effective action to meet life's challenges; and create a more harmonious relationship with yourself, with others and with your environment, then I would love meet you.
